Avocado stuffed with healthy tuna, tomato and peppers

While we were in Florida I decided it was a very good time to try avocado's.  They are plentiful and perfectly ripened and we were in it's prime season.

Hubby likes avocado and I don't but that didn't stop me from trying this healthy lunch recipe I created myself.  Quite simple so this is an easy recipe to follow and loaded with healthy omega's too!

You will enjoy a nice change in this dressing for tuna.  Not the same mayo as most recipes call for.   Using Oil and vinegar really adds some pizazz to it!  Enjoy!

Note:  If you prefer tuna packed in water make sure you drain it well and add oil and vinegar to the recipe.


1 to 2 pkgs of tuna (packed in oil)
1/2 red pepper diced (optional)
1/2 small tomato seeds removed
1/2 small onion or scallion sliced thin
2  ripe avocados cut in half and pit removed
pinch salt and pepper
pinch garlic powder
several small pieces broccoli rabi or fresh broccoli
Note: you can also add some small pieces of avocado to mixture 
wine or balsamic vinegar to drizzle 

Cut ripe avocado in half and remove pit.  

In a separate bowl mix 1 or 2 pkgs. (pouches) of tuna in oil, 1/2 small tomato (seeds removed), broccoli rabi , onion and optional red pepper   Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.  Toss well with spoon and fill avocado's. Drizzle with wine vinegar or if you like balsamic vinegar works well also.

Note:  Any kind of crunchy vegetable would add to this easy stuffed avocado recipe.  Fill the avocado to it is overflowing....Hubby says YUMMY>>>>:)
